The Palace Theater is an absolutely beautiful venue, located close to local hotels & restaurants, easily accessible off Exit4B from I-787 southbound. Seating pretty comfortable. Audio was terrific but I think that depends on the band's audio engineer. We were there to see Get The Led Out, a Led Zeppelin cover (hate that word) band. Venue seats about 3000 and... More

A lovely old theater with classic architectural features. Great for smaller events, such as comedy and intimate concerts. Good views from even the upper sections. Seat rows are narrow and anyone over 5'8" will have to sit with knees bent at an acute angle.

Concert was fabulous. The venue was amazing. sound and line of sight perfect. Ian was in wonderful form as were all his band mates. Visuals thought evoking and warm ups via video interesting. Ian never disappoints.

I absolutely love going to this theatre - be it Joshua Bell and the Albany Symphony, a rock concert like Interpol, or even just for a movie (love to see Warren Miller on the big screen!). This is a beautiful old theatre with great sound. Haven't had a bad seat yet, but warning, there is no elevator so if stairs... More

The Palace Theatre is a great venue to see a concert or watch a movie. The acoustics there are fantastic. The theatre has been restored to its original grandeur, with its gold leaf painted ceiling. The seats are comfortable and there is plenty of parking just a block or two south of the theatre. Very enjoyable!

We are used to old historical theaters but the Palace proves it can be historic but still comfortable. The seats are very comfortable and the legroom unmatched.

This theater has all the charm of the old time theaters, lots of architectural drama. The seating is comfortable, wide & extra leg room (making it extra comfortable for tall or larger patrons). And every seat is a great seat. Their movie. Series is amazing, and for $5 admission it makes it even better.
